In January 2010, WWRD Group Holdings Limited, the group which owns Waterford Crystal, announced that it had signed an agreement with Waterford City Council to open a brand new crystal manufacturing facility and retail outlet in the very heart of Waterford city.
The new manufacturing facility melts down 750 tonnes of crystal and produces 45,000 pieces each year using traditional manufacturing techniques. The facility offers guided tours of the manufacturing process to all visitors, both international and domestic.
Since it’s opening in June 2010, over 250,000 people have visited the home of Waterford Crystal, on the Mall in the heart of this ancient city.
